Time spent looking at a screen generally means time not spent exercising or connecting with your family - and with so much technology around it's easy to lose track of time. Try allocating specific time periods for media use - preferably not during daylight hours when you can be active outdoors instead - to limit your family's screen time.
A great way to kick off the habit of sitting together as a family is to get the kids to host the family 'restaurant' once a week. They can set the table and help prepare the meal with you. Do it on the weekend when things tend to be less busy.
